Camino Way Charity Trek

October 20, 2022

22 – 29 April 2023
100km Charity Trek through rural and coastal northern Spain.

The Camino Portugues Coastal from Vigo to Santiago last 100km, is the last stretch of the Camino Portugues Coastal. This coastal route starts in the dynamic seaside town of Vigo, in the heart of the Rías Baixas, famous for its Albariño white wine and delicious shellfish. The weather along the route can be mildly rainy during the year but it clears up in the summer months and the climate is comparable to the Pacific North West region of North America.

There are many things to see on this route that should appeal to those interested in a more simplistic life, filled with history, great food, wine, and beaches. In Vigo, stroll along the seafront enjoying views of the magnificent Cíes Islands. The fishing city of Vigo boasts many fine buildings of Romanesque architecture with a host of museums that will keep any history buff entertained. In addition, a visit to the historic town square (Casco Vello) is advised as is taking some time to relax on one of the city’s many beaches.

The Camino Portugues Coastal last 100km joins the classic Camino Portugues Central in the town of Redondela where you will start meeting fellow pilgrims. You will continue your journey passing many small villages and towns such as Pontesampaio, wonderful Pontevedra, the spa town of Caldas de Reis and Padrón, home of the famous peppers.

This self-guided trek is rated ‘medium’ difficulty.
